MANTRA & MALA MAKING WORKSHOP
Join us for an introduction to the practice of mantra and mala making. We’ll learn how to use mantras to improve our peace of mind, compassion and wisdom. It connects us with the good qualities of the enlightened beings and helps us to realize our highest potential. Afterward, you will learn the traditional art of making and using a mala. A mala is a string of beads used to count prayers or mantra recitations. For Buddhist practitioners, their mala is a very precious and meaningful object.
